Jurassic Park 3
Prepares to Roar into Theaters
There's a new dinosaur character in Jurassic Park 3 called the Spinosaurus (Spino for short). It is a 16 foot dinosaur whereas the T-Rex was a 14.5 foot dinosaur.
"The looks of these dinosaurs, the way their skin and muscles move, and how they behave in their environment, is far more detailed and explicit than in the first films," says Visual Effects Supervisor Jim Mitchell who works at Industrial Light & Magic. "The Spinosaurus dives into a lake. He has to act in water. Some of the most dramatic real life images are the Spinosaurus in the water."
Jurassic Park 3 is said to contain more visual effects than the first two films and will be quite different, and even darker, with a new director and crew. The film is rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America.
There are already
plans for a Jurassic Park 4.
